Allison Anderson

Lecturer in tourism planning and development, CQUniversity Australia

Tropical cities are my research area, especially how many are developing from being the 'supporting act' to the 'main event' for tourists. My research looks particularly at how tropical cities are innovating their urban landscapes to move beyond the traditional huts, colonial-style architecture, beaches and palm trees and emerge as complex and cosmopolitan sites of tourist and resident activity.

I recently submitted my PhD through James Cook University on Urban design and tourism in the tropics. I have worked as a tourism research and development consultant and strategic planner for a number of years, and hold a BSc (Hons) (Geography) from Victoria University of Wellington, NZ (1998).

Allyssa McCabe

Professor of Psychology, UMass Lowell
Allyssa McCabe, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at University of Massachusetts Lowell. She founded and co-edited the journal Narrative Inquiry and has researched how narrative develops with age, the way parents can encourage narration, cultural differences in narration, and interrelationships between the development of narrative, vocabulary, and phonological awareness. With David Dickinson, she has developed a theoretical approach to early literacy called the Comprehensive Language Approach, which looks at ways that the various strands of oral and written language (e.g., vocabulary, phonological awareness, print knowledge) affect each other in the acquisition of full literacy. A key concern is with assessment of preschool-aged children, especially preventing misdiagnosis of cultural differences in language use as deficits. With Chien-ju Chang, she most recently published Chinese Language Narration with John Benjamins. She conducted a successful intervention with preschool children attending the Bartlett School in Lowell, enlisting graduate and undergraduate students to build the oral language skills such children need in order to learn to read and write. With Khanh Dinh, she was funded to study the narrative life stories of Latino and Cambodian high school students in Lowell. With Jana Sladkova, she was funded to study the narratives of immigrant children in Lowell.

Alnoor Ebrahim

Professor of Management, Tufts University
Alnoor Ebrahim is a Professor of Management at The Fletcher School, and the Tisch College of Civic Life, at Tufts University. His research addresses several core dilemmas of social change facing businesses, nonprofit organizations, and public agencies: What strategies should they adopt for delivering and scaling social change? How can they best measure and improve their impacts? How should they design their governance and accountability? How can they influence “system” problems such as global poverty that require collective action?

Many of these questions are addressed in Professor Ebrahim’s book, Measuring Social Change: Performance and Accountability in a Complex World (Stanford University Press), which has received multiple awards, including from the Financial Times and Impact & Sustainable Finance Faculty Consortium, and The Alliance for Nonprofit Management. He is also author of the award-winning NGOs and Organizational Change: Discourse, Reporting, and Learning and is co-editor of Global Accountabilities: Participation, Pluralism, and Public Ethics (both with Cambridge University Press).

He previously served on an advisory board to IRIS+ at the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), a working group established by the G7 to create global guidelines on social impact measurement, on Acumen’s Lean Data advisory council, and on the board of Imago Global Grassroots. He has also worked with the NGO Leaders Forum, an annual gathering of CEOs of large humanitarian development organizations. His previous research on accountability mechanisms within the World Bank led to a Congressional Testimony on improving the Bank’s information disclosure policy.

Professor Ebrahim teaches courses on leadership and strategy, and in executive programs at Fletcher, Harvard, and Georgetown. Prior to joining the Fletcher faculty, he taught at Harvard Business School, where he chaired two executive programs for social sector leaders, and also at Virginia Tech. Professor Ebrahim received his doctorate and master’s degrees from Stanford University, and his bachelor of science from M.I.T.

Alpesh Bhudia

Doctoral Researcher in Cyber Security, Royal Holloway University of London
Alpesh Bhudia is a Doctoral candidate at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber-Security for the Everyday, Information Security Group, Royal Holloway University of London.

His research focuses on exploitation of security flaws and design-time assumptions by extortionware and ransomware, and the remediation of those issues. His early work focused on leveraging secure enclaves (SGX) to protect ransomware keys from anti-ransomware software (e.g., Paybreak), in the interest of highlighting the lack of depth in contemporary anti-ransomware approaches [1][2]. This has since evolved into a body of work that includes Proof-of-Stake validators (staking pool operators/investors) as potential targets for next generation ransomware. His research interests include trusted execution environments, user security, ransomware, cyber extortion, and decentralised systems modelling to identify novel exploits and develop countermeasures.

Alton C. Byers

Senior Research Associate, Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, University of Colorado Boulder
Alton C. Byers is a mountain geographer, conservationist, and mountaineer specializing in applied research, high altitude ecosystems, glacier hazards, and implementation of integrated conservation and development programs in the Himalayas, Andes, and East African Highlands. He has published widely on a range of scientific and popular topics, and is an author and co-editor of Mountain Geography: Human and Physical Dimensions (University of California Press at Berkeley, 2013).

Following receipt of his PhD from the Department of Geography at CU Boulder in 1987, he accepted a two-year position as Co-Manager of the Ruhengeri Resource Analysis and Management (RRAM) project in Ruhengeri Prefecture, Rwanda, volunteering as Scientific Advisor to the late Dian Fossey’s Karasoke Research Center. Following this he was hired by the then-Woodlands Mountain Institute to assist in the design, fundraising, and co-management of the new Makalu-Barun National Park and Conservation Area in eastern Nepal, where he lived for two years (1993-95) in a Nepali village with his young family. Upon his return to the U.S. in 1995, he established, funded, and worked as Director of the Andean Program with a base of operations in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, turning the program over to a Peruvian national in 1997 who has managed the project ever since. This period of his career corresponded with a growing interest in alpine conservation and restoration, particularly in tourist-impacted regions of the Himalayas and Andes, where he combined applied research with community awareness building to form several local Alpine Conservation Councils in Nepal and Peru that remain effective to this day. He became Director of Appalachian Programs in 1998, developing a range of local conservation, mountain education, and teacher training programs, including the School for Mountain Studies that regularly took undergraduates on field courses to the Mt. Everest region of Nepal and Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash in Peru.

In the 2000s, Byers added climate change impacts on high mountain environments to his ongoing portfolio of alpine research and conservation, landscape change, and glacial lake management and risk reduction interests, funding and hosting three international, field-based climate change workshops in Nepal and Peru between 2009 and 2013. The High Mountains Adaptation Partnership (HiMAP), that he has co-managed since 2012 with the University of Texas at Austin, has been a particular highlight in his career, where he developed approaches to integrating results from HiMAP glacial lake rapid reconnaissance research into the local adaptation plan of action (LAPA) process. After 25 years at TMI of project implementation, applied research, cross-programmatic and institutional fundraising, he left TMI in April 2015 to pursue a range of writing, research, and high mountain projects and initiatives, and currently serves as Senior Research Associate at INSTAAR.
